SAN DIEGO — A family argument in San Diego’s Mountain View neighborhood turned bloody over the weekend when a man stabbed his brother-in-law several times with a knife, police said.

Officers were called to the 200 block of Vista Horizon Street at about 9 p.m. Sunday after the fight broke out between a 22-year-old man and his 34- year-old brother-in-law, San Diego Police Officer Dino Delimitros Said.

The 34-year-old victim was stabbed in the thigh six times and had his index finger severely cut during the fight, which occurred at a family function, where the victim was arguing with another family member, Delimitros said.

The 22-year-old suspect attempted to intervene when the victim punched him. That’s when the suspect got a knife and stabbed the victim. The injuries are not considered life-threatening, according to Delimitros.

The identities of the men were not released and there were no other injuries.
